“For almost two decades, we, as owners, have entrusted the running of our “Gold Award” holiday-let properties to Keswick Cottages. We can be confident that the standards of maintenance and cleanliness that the Tourist Board expects are met. The properties are welcoming from the moment that our guests arrive: fresh and bright in Summer and warm and cosy in Winter, while the team at Keswick Cottages is on hand throughout our guests’ stay to provide personal service if required. We are proud to support a local company and feel that being a local, family run company contributes enormously towards the enjoyment of a holiday in Keswick. It is not surprising that our guests return year on year”.
(Suzanne & Roger: The Owners of Greta Bank)
It has been a pleasure to have Keswick Cottages managing our property for the past six years. Being a smaller and local family agency has enabled us to benefit from their extensive Keswick knowledge and experience, but also provides a much more personal service for us. It is always reassuring to be able to discuss any concerns with the friendly and efficient team. Reviews from our guests tell us that they also appreciate the quality of service and support. Highly recommended!
(Liz owner of Skiddaw Skies)
We have been a client of Keswick Cottages for over three years now and I find them to be a helpful, hands-on family agency. When we first approached Keswick Cottages for them to manage Lake View Cottage it had never been rented out before. Keswick Cottages have built up our clientele over the three year period whereby several of our customers are now repeat visitors. The agency is always giving helpful advice on how to improve the rental experience to our clients as well as efficiently and effectively managing our cottage. Our property is always cleaned to a very high standard especially as we allow owners to bring their dog as well. After each clean our property is always checked by an official from Keswick Cottages to ensure that the highest standards are maintained before our guests arrive.
I would highly recommend Keswick Cottages if you as a cottage owner were in the process of selecting a reputable agent to manage your property.

We as owners wanted to work with a small local agent, that knew the area, so that their knowledge would help our guests experience, and we have been impressed by their dedication, efficiency and professional approach to all areas, thanks to this we have had a high number of guests returning

Keswick Cottages have made letting our cottage and flat really easy. From set up to ongoing support, they are always available for trusted, honest advice.
(Owners of Lone Tree Cottage)
Ahead of buying Crandy Nook in 2007, we did some financial research enlisting the help of local agents. Keswick Cottages, being a smaller, family-run business were more personable and accommodating with their time, providing us with a greater insight into potential income, costs, available local support and how the maisonette might be furnished. As well as helping us source furnishings, they even helped us move some of the furniture in.
The set-up is very simple; the contract is a one-pager. The agent visited our property to assess the accommodation, what would be needed to achieve VisitEngland 4* status and how best it could be marketed; what was very clear, both have very high standards and they know their stuff. They priced the accommodation for short (3/4 days) and long (week) breaks and uploaded an advert with quality images onto their website in quick time.
Bookings are advised immediately so you can keep your diary up to date. Payments for bookings are paid monthly supported by detailed statements, which also include brief details of future bookings.
Keswick Cottages and 2Clean are a close-knit team; we have always been able to seek help and support at relatively short notice, most reassuring when you live 90 miles away. 2Clean are a great resource. They have been in touch promptly if they’ve identified any issues post-guests; this allows you to manage your security deposits. We’ve also had good consistent feedback where guests have commented on their stay – this is in part due to their cleaning supervisory checks ahead of guests’ arrivals.

We have been with Keswick Cottages since buying our holiday let in Keswick 4 years ago. The initial process when we started to let the house was straightforward and support has been friendly and professional ever since.
We are kept up to date with bookings and a useful monthly report of future bookings is supplied.
Any queries we may have are met with a friendly voice on the end of the phone.
We live a distance away from Keswick and so the help with maintenance and cleaning is very useful. After every let the house is always cleaned to a high standard ready for the next occupants.
Thank you for all your help.
(John Owner of Abacourt Cottage)
We have let our cottage through Keswick Cottages since we bought it in 2007. We have received consistently good service from the agency, from initial advice on how to manage the property, with recommendations on what to provide for guests, to support throughout our ownership. It is good to know the business is a local one and with a small staff I always know who is on the end of the phone when I call. The staff are consistently friendly and helpful. We stay in the cottage usually about 6 times a year and are able to book ourselves in directly and easily. We love staying there and it is always clean and fresh when we arrive.
The cleaning service has always been good but is now excellent and we have recently started using the linen service which means we don’t have to worry about keeping up the standards of linen. It is always reassuring to know that they are keeping an eye on the property and will let us know if there are any problems. The cottage books well and this is an incentive for us to make improvements to keep our guests happy.
(Helen Owner of Quaver Cottage)
Keswick cottages have let our property for over 4 years. From the initial stages of preparing for letting through to the Covid 19 situation, Keswick Cottages have supported us every step of the way. They are always available for advice and provide helpful feedback when we are looking to upgrade or change anything.
We also really appreciate the accuracy of their on line booking systems and monthly invoicing. Family members are also actively encouraged to stay in our property which is great for us.
We live quite a distance away from Keswick and as such we are grateful that Keswick Cottages look after our property in our absence.
Their in house cleaning company, also receive excellent feedback from our guests and from Visit England inspections.
We love visiting Keswick on holiday and each time we visit our property we are always pleased with how well it has been cared for.
